Perspectives: Light & Dark, Past & Present, Land & Sea

And today, I soak
my eyes in the perfect blend
of sea blue, gold dust.

Where content urges
of waves kiss my tanned toes with
achingly cold lips.

Broken and battered
shells, stones sift between fingers.
Reclaimed by blue arms.

Riddled with relics:
white bone sarcophagi,
bank vaults turned to pubs.

Walking on ancient stones
the weight of their history
sparking imagery

Of armored horses.
Fierce and strong gladiators
gritted teeth, burnt eyes.

White gauze, robed women.
The ethereal beauties
escape the day’s heat.

Under canopies,
in fountains, by the teal sea.
Gazing out, wonder.

Sunlight dappling
vibrant gardens and flowing
fountains giving life.

Photographer’s cue,
I step into the shadows.
Light, dark, perspective.

Altered perspectives
playing shadows against light
in the rhythmic dance.

Play and discover,
Wild wind, calm shores, dancing love.
Golden amber sun.

Wild breeze, brazen light.
Losing fear in tangled strands,
in playful shadows.
